In the previous episode, we concerned ourselves with the so called ‘Kwestie-Schuyt,’ a conflict that had no winners but only losers in the end, and
Government fundingThe fund’s formation was preceded by years of struggle, starting in 1964. Original instigators
were Misha Mengelberg and Peter Schat,
followed by Nico Schuyt and Rob du Bois. Composers wanted to be taken seriously and demanded a structural support from the government, just like visual artists and authors before them. They argued for a Fonds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst, analogous to similar, pre-existing organisations for visual arts (Beeldende Kunstenaars Regeling) and writers (Fonds voor de Letteren), that would divide the government’s financial aid.
New at the Concertzender: Radio Resistencia
Radio Resistencia is a programme filled with adventurous pop music: ranging from indie pop to noise and from techno to lo-fi. The programme can be heard each second Sunday of the month, 20:00 – 21:00 CET.
The idea for Radio Resistencia came about when DJ M, form Enfant Terrible (a label with roots in Utrecht) and the two men behind Lesbian Mouseclicks (r.i.p./electropop from Utrecht) met each other. The programme exists since 2010 and more than 60 episodes have been made during the last few years. Radio Resistencia has been broadcast on Intergalactic FM (platform of electro-producer I-F) since the beginning.
KapitaalSince 2015, the programs are recorded live
during a three hour mini-event in Kapitaal in Utrecht. A ‘compact’ hour-long radio broadcast, with an emphasis on the live act in Kapitaal, is edited especially for the Concertzender.
